Housing Information

BNL provides an array of on-site housing options for visitors expecting to stay less than one year, including dormitories, family-sized apartments, efficiencies, and the Guest House. Space is assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Linens, cleaning services and, in some cases, cooking and eating utensils are provided. All rooms are equipped with refrigerators and access to cooking facilities.

For information about accommodations and rates, or to make a reservation, contact the Housing Office, (631) 344-2541 or housing@bnl.gov, or visit their website.

The Housing Office is open Monday-Friday (8 a.m. to midnight) and Sundays (4 p.m. to midnight) in the Research Support Building (Building 400). Those arriving or leaving at other times may pick up or drop off keys at Police Headquarters (Building 50). Checkout time is 1:00 p.m. Before leaving, return your keys to the Housing Office (or Police Headquarters after hours). Payment for housing is due upon arrival, and the housing office accepts cash, checks, travelers checks, Visa, MasterCard and American Express for housing bills.

A listing of conveniently located off-site hotels is also available.
